.....to everyone who visited Teresa's blog and left a comment!!! You guys are THE BEST. Working "out of the box" sometimes is great experience. You really push the envelope and try new things.

BUT, ha, this is where I really love to work. In the GRUNGE, or VINTAGE area.

This is what I find easier to put together. Maybe because I've done more of it, I don't know.

This was so much fun.

Tim stuff, of course, the little dots around the edge are with the new Black Enamel Accents from Ranger. And I used Chipped Sapphire on the blue paper.

The flowers are with Tim's Die, Tattered Florals, sprayed with Luminarte, and stamped with the Artful Artifacts alphabet stamp. Olive Archival Ink was used on the background blue paper ( all 3 of Tim's great paper stacks are in this) and another one of Tim's stamps. (Hey, the man can really design STAMPS!)

Since this is a shadow box, it was hard to photograph without a shadow. But the BOX is from Petaloo. Their All White Peony Box Blends comes in this VERY cool black slider box! I LOVED it!

The Tissue Tape around the box worked out just perfect. That stuff is a MUST. WAY cool!!!

The rest of the embellishments are from Tim, except one little flower center.

Now, for the Luminarte, man, is it FULL of mica. It is really, really, fun to work with. You can't believe the shine of this stuff. I'd show you something I'm working on, but you know the old %@&**, it's a secret.

These paints have been around for a long time, but Creative Imaginations just "new and improved" them. You can paint, spray, daub, and do all kinds of wonderful things with them. You know them as Twinkling H2O's and Radiant Rains.

So keep an eye to the sky. I'll be back with some more fun stuff I've done in the last few months that I've been saving.

And CREATE ART when you have time!
